Gardening Birthday Card

I've made this card for a friend at work who loves gardening. The faux wood frame is made from strips of card - I embossed them with my new Tim Holtz Texture Fade, then inked them with Distress inks before curling them slightly, adding tiny gold brads and attaching with 3D foam pads. The sunflower fence is a 3D border sticker from Papermania and the die cuts are from eBay.



I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
